Ok so finally made a decision this weekend after 6 hours of bickering with numerous dealers.
2012 ram 1500 big horn
did go with 2wd
loaded minus nav
hemi 5.7 multi disp
Not my fav color but got a heck of a deal on it so feel good about it. Bye bye denali. Got 18.5mpg on way into work today in heavy traffic vs the 12.5 I was averaging before!
